Halloween History and Traditions
Halloween is celebrated every year on October 31st, the eve of All Saints' Day, which takes place on November 1st. The origins of Halloween lie in the traditions of Ireland and Scotland, and nowadays Halloween is a holiday that is celebrated in many countries around the world - in Europe and Asia, North America and Australia.
One of the most famous and famous symbols of Halloween is the Jack-O-Lantern - a lantern made from a pumpkin from which the core has been removed and replaced with a lit candle. Usually an ominous grimace is carved into the pumpkin shell, and a candle burning inside only adds to the fear. It was once believed that a Jack-o'-lantern placed near a home would ward off various evil spirits from the house on All Saints' Day. Pumpkins were not always used for Jack's lantern; in Scotland and Ireland they used turnips for it, but the pumpkin was larger and more convenient, so over time the tradition changed, and now we cannot imagine celebrating Halloween without lanterns made from pumpkins.
Unlike the jack-o-lantern, the tradition of dressing up in carnival costumes is relatively new - it is no more than a century old, but the tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween has more ancient roots - it dates back to the Middle Ages, when on All Saints' Day, people asked for raisin cupcakes in exchange for prayers for deceased relatives. Currently, this tradition has turned into a kind of playful extortion, as evidenced by the phrase that appeared at Halloween celebrations in the United States - trick-or-treat.
